I was then going to re-cover the headlining to hide the clips. The ali should strengthen it and stop the centre part of the biscuit from sagging
What's your idea dan?

Glue a strong magnet in there instead. Glue it to the top of the headlinging and it'll stick to the roof but still be removable if you need it to me.

Hard drive magnets are thin and VERY strong so I'd cannibalise a drive for them as a start point.

That's an idea but as yet I don't know what gap there is between the roof and biscuit when it's in, next time i'm there I will put it back in and see what the gap is

The gap isn't a lot as standard which is why there is foam on the top to stop it rubbing on the roof.

Thanks Dan, I might be able to get to the car Sunday so will check first then.
Will also be starting to re-wire the front leccy windows with the wiring and control box from a later model. Easy to do but I want to keep the switches in the doors so it could be interesting.
I will hopefully just extend the switch wiring to the doors from the control box using a loom from my donor wiring and remount the box under the dash so it's hidden
Donor wiring is for 4 leecy windows, it's all there somewhere

Located a tensioner in ......Spain, luckily my eldest sons girlfriend is Spanish and will enquire for me.
In the meantime I will be finishing off the leccy window wiring, trying to remove the snapped bolt in the engine and replacing the corplugs as one or two look abit rusty

I've found what I'm going to use to strengthen the headlining biscuit and stop it going out of shape.
Found it in Wickes. One or two strips glued on should brace it enough

Tensioner was a no go but i've sourced a tensioner that very nearly the same.
all dimensions are the same.
These are from a Ford ohc Pinto engine, capri, cortina, transit etc so should be sufficient

Ye I have been keeping an eye of this thread and the other one (you linked) for a fair while now when ever it pops up.
That black one looks in better shape than it most likely did when it left the factory, fair play it looks like art.
